Oprah Winfrey

Updated on November 3, 2013

Who is Oprah Winfrey?

In case you have been living in the Amazon jungles the past 20 years and do not know who Oprah Winfrey is, consider this a basic backgrounder:

Oprah Winfrey is one of the most influential people in the world. She hosts the highest rated talk show in history. On the Oprah Winfrey Show show, everything from Books to Breast Cancer is discussed. Her success is due mostly to her charm, wit and frank ability to discuss virtually everthing.

Oprah Winfrey is not only a talented entertainer, she is also a successful business woman, Academy Award-nominated actress, magazine publisher, film producer, and author. With an estimated wealth exceeding $1.5 billion, Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest humans alive. Not a bad accomplishment for a woman that rose from absolute poverty and a dysfunctional home.

Oprah Winfrey regularly selects some products or gifts as "favorite things" and displays them proudly on her website. Usually when she does this, everyone in the audience gets one and there is regularly such a rush to buy the products that they often go out of stock for some time. Oprah's favorite things range from Ipods to socks to sexy lingerie including Oprah's favorite bras. As an example, below is a video clip where Oprah announces The Blackberry as one of her favorite things.

We have done the hard work for you, and below you will find a list of as many of Opraph Winfrey's favorite things as we can find on
